Book/diskette combination that deals solely with Mathematica graphics. Offers step-by-step instruction on how to create computer graphics with Mathematica. Contains a vast range of carefully chosen and organized examples of Mathematica graphics. Also includes 32 pages of full-color demonstrations.

The available electronic supplement provides functions that include the plotting of surfaces and contours over random data sets, labelling of contour lines, plotting contours subject to a constraint, smoothing contours, plotting field lines, a collection of geometric functions in two and three dimensions, as well as the ubiquitous fractal plot. Some of the functions require MathLink binaries, which are available in source code and are compiled for Macintosh (classic) and Windows computers.
